Bet on Indiana vs. Rutgers

Indiana has won four straight meetings with Rutgers and the home team has covered the spread in the last two meetings. While Indiana is on a losing streak, the Hoosiers are still covering. They have had a tough stretch of playing Purdue, Ohio State and Michigan State in its last three. The Hoosiers will be excited to get a chance to face a team like Rutgers, which hasn’t been covering or winning lately. The public betting is split on this game, but I will take Indiana to cover on the road.
